advantages and disadvantages of owning a car
First, I think the most important advantage of owning automobile are the amenity it brings to us. Public transportation are horrible in my country and the taxies fees are very expensive than every one can use them regularly. When I hadn’t time I had that problem and because I can’t caught the bus I become late to work. I remember that how many arguments I had with my boss about that.
And now after my marriage I had a twins. it is almost impossible to imagine what i should do if had no car to coney them to their kindergarten. Having no car make it impossible even to go to a simple family picnic. So owning car brings a facilities to avoid a awful public transports for me.
Secondly, If you had a car, you should be ready to pay money to diverse things. The simple and the most important things I have to pay for it is gas. thank god I had a economic Toyota I can’t imagine how much I have to pay for the gas if I own one the american SUV’s. Spending money for maintenance the car is common, and if the engine broke or I had accident I have to spend more. Paying for insurance is mandatory in my country. So owning a car is real money consuming and this is one of the disadvantage of owning a car.
In conclusion owning a car had advantage like avoiding using public transport to give you more freedom and has disadvantage like spending money for the gas and insurance.
